DUMB question regarding chest ct scan~
I should know this but I want to be sure. Will a CT scan of the chest show breast tumors, fibroids or even thickened tissue?

My oncologist sees me once a yr unless I'm having any problems, but I get scanned every 3 months to check on 3 small nodes in my right lung. I found some lumps and thickening in my right breast and I figured if it was anything it would show on the ct. Is this correct or should I see my oncologist anyway? My scan is in the morning..

Hi.

The CT scan may not be the best tool to evaluate breast lesions, and it is possible that these breast lesions are not picked up by the latest scans that you had.  Other diagnostic tests like mammograms or breast MRI can adequately evaluate these lesions.  I agree that you need to have this seen by your doctors.

Regards.
